Paddy Barnes looks set to retire after he lost on a split points decision to Oscar Mojica in New York on Sunday night.
One judge scored it 58-56 for Barnes while two others had it 58-56 for Mojica and Barnes says he may call it a day.
“I am too small for bantamweight. To be honest, I will probably retire now.
“I don’t think there is any point boxing on after a defeat like that.
“The fans were great but at the end of the day I have to take care of my health. If I am going to box like that, then what’s the point boxing anymore?
“I can’ t contest for a world title with that performance. I strongly think retirement could happen.
“I always said if I lost again, I would retire. So that will be it.
“I stepped up to bantamweight, and I could feel his strength.
“The first shot that hit me broke my nose.
“The fight wasn’t even close, I thought he won every round. I am very disappointed,” added Barnes.
And Tevin Farmer defeated Ireland’s Jono Carroll with a hard-fought unanimous decision to retain his IBF super featherweight title in Philadelphia.
The fight was scored 117-110, 117-111, 117-111 in Farmer’s favour after 12 gruelling rounds, handing Carroll his first loss.
Ireland’s Katie Taylor added the WBO lightweight belt to her WBA and IBF titles with a ninth-round stoppage win over Rose Volante as she targeted a unification fight with WBC champion Delfine Persoon on the card of Anthony Joshua at Madison Square Garden in June.
